Wanted to update my blog with a couple of photos taken by my friend Jill at the rug hooking workshop last weekend in Sebring FL. The mermaid is almost finished. WOW - doesn't she look good in these photos!
I am now about 1/2 done with the outer and final border. I won't say how long I have been working on this mermaid but it has been delightful to hook. The colors are so pleasing and the subject matter is interesting. Thanks for looking!
I love old textiles - samplers quilts rugs coverlets furniture etc. I love samplers and stitching them. Knitting has been with me my whole life and is probably my first love. Rug hooking is a passion for me and I really love the creative freedom in working with wool. Hope you enjoy all my wooley thoughts !
